Top Shelf: Summer Reading

Reading is a consistent and favorite summer activity for our family. My children's schools require our kids to read books (both specific titles and ones of their choosing) over the break, and I like to make my own #TBR list. I have a stack of books on my nightstand that I desperately want to get through. I am so excited about them!


Today I'm sharing some of those books and other favorites I think would be great to reread on those slower summer days.


The Good Left Undone by Adriana Trigiani - I love Trigiani's books. She creates mesmerizing characters and writes intimately about families. This is her most recent book and an instant bestseller. I can't wait to read it!


Part of Your World by Abby Jimenez - I really enjoy Jimenez's work. She uses emotion, humor and wonderful characterization to create contemporary storylines. I have a feeling this going to be one of my favorite summer reads. I've reviewed and mentioned her other books here.


The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger - Although it was published in 2004, an adapted series released on HBO earlier this week. It might be fun to reread this bestseller, and then watch the series starring Theo James and Rose Leslie.



The Road Back to You by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile - This is a great book for introspection, self-exploration and relationship-building. I love the Enneagram and this is the perfect book to start a self-study.


The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley - It's a contemporary thriller. I generally don't enjoy this genre, but it's received strong reviews so I hope to finish it before the fall.


Before We Were Strangers by Renee Carlino - One of my all-time favorite contemporary books. It's about young adulthood, college life, music and love. It gives me all the feels every time I read it.


My 2022 summer reading list is ambitious, but I am so excited to start!
